Julia Johnson is an Australian singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist. Autumn 2017 saw Johnson’s first musical release “Melissa” since folding her long-standing country-folk band, the Deep Sea Sirens. Keeping hold of her menagerie of traditional folk instruments, Julia has put down her guitar to delve further in to autoharp, synths, banjo, and her vintage Casiotone MT-65. The past few years have been spent between Johnson’s hometown Canberra, Berlin and Sydney, where she is currently based. “Love the playful guitar plucking and that lilt of Julia’s voice” – Zan Rowe, TripleJ “Bat For Lashes reimagined as the soundtrack to the next party you throw in an opulent baroque chateau.” – Dom Alessio, TripleJ Julia is a TripleJ Unearthed awarded songwriter who has supported iconic Australian artists including Courtney Barnett, Jen Cloher, Newtown Faulkner, Tim Rogers, Bob Evans, and Pete Murray as well as performing at folk and contemporary music festivals such as National Folk Festival and Groovin' The Moo. “Johnson’s voice mirrors the slow but treacherous current of a mountain river” – Ron Cerabona, The Canberra Times “This confidently straddles the lines between slightly folk-tinged, rustic sounds and a bright-eyed pop sensibility, with good lyrics to boot. Can see this going nuts with a slightly older triple j crowd.” Al Newstead, TripleJ
